New Member: Teri Canada

We welcome back to our membership architect Teri Canada. Teri was inducted by Membership Committee member Shannon Leskin and was sponsored by Past President Arthur Rogers. That’s Arthur in the background as Teri flashes her Wolfpack loyalties. Here in her own words is a little bit about Teri’s background. We’re glad to have you back Teri. Please welcome Teri and introduce yourself if you haven’t met her before.

I am an Architect who has been living and working in Durham for the past 20+ years.  I moved to Durham after graduating from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. I previously worked for Isley Hawkins, MHA Works and The Freelon Group (now Perkins+Will).  I have been married for almost 18 years to my husband, Will Gilbert, and we have a 9 year old daughter named Morgan.  I recently started a new architectural firm, EVOKE Studio Architecture, along with two partners, Billy Askey and Edwin Harris.  We have been in business for over a year and are located in downtown Durham at 401 Foster Street.

I was an active Rotarian from 2006 until 2009+, but my activity dropped in Rotary due to my work travel schedule.  I am returning to Rotary because this organization has an excellent record of service that continues to significantly impact local, national and international communities.  I also remember the encouragement and support that I received from my fellow Rotarians when I previously served.  Many of those members kept in touch with me after I left the organization and they are also a key reason for my return.

I am happy to be given a second chance to serve as a Rotarian.  I look forward to working with my fellow Rotarians to accomplish great things in the coming year.

Thank you,
